Edgar-Award nominee Elle Cosimano’s witty, fast-paced adult debut follows struggling suspense novelist and single mom Finlay Donovan, whose fiction begins to tread dangerously close to the truth.
Finlay Donovan is killing it… except, she’s really not. The new book she promised her literary agent isn’t written, her ex-husband went behind her back to fire the nanny, and this morning she had to send her four-year-old to school with hair duct-taped to her head after an incident with scissors.
When Finlay’s overheard discussing the plot of her new novel with her agent over lunch, she’s mistaken for a contract killer, and inadvertently accepts an offer to dispose of a problem husband in order to make ends meet... and she soon discovers that crime in real life is a lot more difficult than its fictional counterpart.
